Like you, I gasped in horror as I saw Notre Dame burning just a couple of days ago.
I was just in Paris a few months ago and we didn’t even stop by. I took it for granted that it was there and would always be there. Luckily, when we took our sons, then ages 5 and 8, nearly a decade ago, we toured it thoroughly. Even waiting in the line to climb the very narrow staircase to the top. I remember how they enjoyed the view of the Eiffel Tower, as we had visited that the day before.
These photos aren’t even very good. But, I’m glad I have them.
During this Holy Week, I can’t help but believe that Notre Dame will rise again from the ashes. And, that it has reminded us all not to take things for granted.
